    You absolutely must go to iPhoneArt.com, create an account, set up a gallery and upload your work. That's how we submitted to the show, via our IPA Gallery. They also have an app.

    If I don't see vixenscry there soon, I'm comin' to Schropshire to kick some butt. :sneaky: :inlove:

    Some additional pictures to supplement RoseCat's wonderful selection, starting with setup late last week, the Friday night informal drink-fest in the rooftop bar overlooking the airport (complete with crickets and scorpions on the menu and on some peoples' plates) - and on through opening night! So glad to meet so many of you there!

    The intrepid co-founders of iPA and the LA-MAF show - Nate Parks and Daria Polichetti:

    [​IMG]

    The daunting, week-long set up:

    Our very own Catherine Restivo (RoseCat) and iPA's sasseefrench:

    The party gets cooking:

    [​IMG]

    At the start of the opening one of the few last remaining gentlemen in the world - Eeken (iPA handle), who traveled two days through Australia from New Caledonia, presented Daria with flowers. Her first big smile of the (exhausting) day:

    [​IMG]

    Eeken stands in front of his very impressive piece, printed on aluminum, in the Olde Curiosity Shoppe:

    [​IMG]

    Let the line begin! The first of maybe 500 - 600 visitors on opening night queue up for their name tags and programs even before the official start time:

    [​IMG]

    As the halls fill up, so do the wine glasses and munchie plates...

    There's the occasional alien sighting...

    ... and any number of after the after get-togethers out on the streets of Santa Monica that never sleep...
